Looking for a good budget receiver to run 7.1 with the following speakers. Front Polk R50 and R300x4 for surrounds with a PSW10(for now) sub. I havent chosen a center channel yet but it will probably be a CSR or CS1.
Not really sure how much power I'll need, but I always love more... The system will be mainly for movies and TV. I'll want component video switching since my TV doesnt support HDMI or DVI. One other quirk I have is that if the volume numbers get smaller (start and -80 and go to 0 or +20) that annoys me. I prefer the 0-100 scheme, dont know why, that just bothers me. Budget im looking around 500 or less.
